The U.F.P.S. (United Federation Penguin Starship) Rockhopper (sometimes known as the Penguin's ship) is the spaceship. It's unknown who built it.

It's crew members are

  • Zidgel - Captain
  • Midgel - Engineer and pilot
  • Fidgel - Scientist and inventor
  • Kevin - Various jobs


The exterior is egg shaped with jet thrusters and wings. The upper half and the thrusters are sky blue, while the bottom half is white.

There are two wings and a propeller, though it's unknown why as there's no atmosphere in space.

It has a framed glass window above and two small windows on the sides for the pilot to see.

There is also an amounted door on the side for anyone to come in and out.


The Main room

The main room consists of the captain's seat,

Other rooms

Besides the main room, there are also rooms in the Rockhopper. There is a bathroom, and a bedroom for Jason and Michelle to rest while they're on missions.

There is also a closet where most unused items are kept.


The extra pilot seat

Originally, the pilot seat Kevin usually sits was a toy control panel where Kevin can play with. Later, it was turned into a control panel for a robotic arm that is equipped with the ship.

Landing gear

Prior to Jason and Michelle's arrival, the crew never heard of the term. After their mission on Wait-Your-Turn, Midgel though it was a great idea.

There were various types of landing gear the crew used.

Fun Facts

  • The ship never had an official name in the original episodes until the television series appeared.
  • The name comes from the penguin species. This also makes sense for Zidgel as captain since he's a rockhopper penguin.
  • In the original episode, two separate models were made to differ if it's alive or not.
